Praise for Drama
A New York Times bestseller
"Telgemeier draws up-by-their-book-bags characters who value hard work and seize a chance that has nothing to do with looks or even with love. While capable of boy craziness, they concentrate on friendship and creative fulfillment. The better Telgemeier's books sell, the less hand-wringing to do over the next generation. If this is what the youth of America are into, the kids are all right." -The New York Times Book Review
*"The author follows up her award-winning graphic novel Smile with another dead-on look at the confusing world of middle school, sweetly capturing all the drama swirling around the school production...Telgemeier's manga-infused art has some moments of heartache, but the generally cheerful and affirming story should be eagerly devoured by her many fans." -Publishers Weekly, starred review
*"With the clear, stylish art, the strongly appealing characters and just the right pinch of drama, this book will undoubtedly make readers stand up and cheer." -Kirkus, starred review
*"In this realistic and sympathetic story, feelings and thoughts leap off the page, revealing Telgemeier's keen eye for young teen life." -Booklist, starred review
"As in Smile, Telgemeier's graphic artist skills make this novel a pleasure to read and re-read; of special note is her thoughtful use of the page turn-for surprise, for a pause, for emotional effect." -Horn Book
